The 00Z KKEY RAOB (Radiosonde Observation or Upper-Air Observation) sampled a much drier atmosphere compared to 12-hours ago. The profile was warmer and less unstable. Aside from 925 mb, heigheights increased at all SGLs. Satellite imagery denotes a sharp gradient in moisture, with the juicier stuff over the Straits of Florida. Southerly steering should redevelop overnight (looks as if it has already started), but this time there are very few boundaries to initiate. The one we can see right now extends from Flamingo, southwest across the Seven Mile Bridge. The forecast calls for only slight rain chances (10%) for the overnight, with lows mainly in the mid to upper 70s. The largest islands will once again fall to near 70. No changes are needed or planned.

Marine
There are no watches, warning, or advisories currently in effect for the coastal waters of the Florida Keys. Boaters should note less clearance under fixed bridges. Coastal Flood Statements remain in effect. From synopsis, variable breezes will continue tonight and Wednesday as high pressure remains displaced well to the east of the Keys in the western North Atlantic. The high pressure will extend westward into the southeastern United States by Wednesday night, resulting in freshening east to southeast breezes Thursday through Sunday

Climate
On this day in Keys Weather history In 2005, a persistent cloud line produced numerous funnel clouds and waterspouts just north of Key West for over an hour.
